Registration is $50 per child. Tuition fees are: $350 for one child, $450 for a family of 2 children, and $550 for a family of 3 children. The deadline to register is May 19, 2018. Those registered by May 5, 2018, with tuition paid in full, will receive a $50 discount.
This cultural enrichment program aims to inspire students to use culture and the arts to help develop their power of expression. Emphasis is placed on building relationships and the importance of developing communities with culture and creativity in mind. We believe that this will enhance young people’s abilities to be creative thinkers, thereby rendering them fluent in various art forms so they may be able to use art to work with life’s challenges.
Applications are available at Ashé Power House, 1731 Baronne Street. For more information, call (504) 569-9070.
